IoT Emerge: The Woodstock for the Internet of Things

Join thousands of your colleagues and industry leaders as they gather at Emerge IoT in Chicago’s McCormick Place on Nov. 2-4 for three days filled with the latest updates and insights into the Internet of Things (IoT). The event, put on by Penton’s IoT Institute will give participants real-world observations and case-studies on IoT, strategic and technical sessions, hands-on training and workshops, live demonstrations of IoT in action, including an expo floor with over 60 companies, and local tours of IoT-enabled facilities.

The live event is tailored for end users and developers and engineers of IoT devices, systems, and services, including private- and public-sector leaders, operations, IT, and engineering managers, and systems integrators and IoT developers.

The first two days will feature over 30 sessions and more than 35 IoT experts talking on a wide range of topics. Sessions will be broken down into four hot IoT categories:

Industrial IoT

Smart Buildings & Energy

IoT Security

and, of special interest to the Machine Design audience, IoT Engineering

The complete agenda, including details on all the sessions and the three special keynote speakers and presentations, is available online, as is the full list of expert speakers

The IoT Engineering sessions, which are scheduled for Wed., Nov. 2, include:
Smarter Products, Complicated Architecture: A Look at Common Pitfalls in Developing Connected Products

A Low-Cost, Open-Source IoT Solution for Irrigation Management

Why Executing on an IoT Strategy Is Much More Than Simply Engineering a “Thing”
IoT Strategy: Engineering, Science, and Art
Exploring the Use of Sensors to Create Compelling Digital Journeys

On Thursday, attendees will get a chance to go behind the scenes to tour pioneering IoT companies in the Chicago area.
